Caperdonich 17yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel)
Part of a series of six new Burns Malt single cask single malt releases from The Whisky Barrel this is the Caperdonich 17yr Burns Malt.
I've been really impressed by the Burns Malt series from The Whisky Barrel they definitely seem to pick some cracking whiskies.
Why not drop by The Whisky Barrel and check out this and their other selections of single cask whisky
the nose on this starts off really quite prickly on the nose, it comes across more alcoholic that it is, there's touches of lemongrass and crunchy green apples with a slight menthol note and a very light caramel note. A little water opens this up and adds floral gums and pineapple juice
the palate on this is really spikey and prickly, a little water opens it up and tames it down and the lemongrass, floral gums and pineapple juice come out,
really prickly straight but eases off lovely with a few drops of water and becomes an easy drinking dram.
